    Here's a link to snakes in VA: http://www.virginiaherpetologicalsoc...f_virginia.htm

    The white under the head makes me think maybe an eastern ratsnake? I've seen a few of them on the MVT

    If he liked to hang around in your basement, I'd say you had some other critter problems, like his food source. With a nod to Kliban - "Love to eat them mousies, mousies what I love to eat..."

    I just spent way too much time looking at all the snake pics on that page.

    It took almost three years before this thread had a Samuel L Jackson reference? What is wrong with you people?

    I saw a snake today on the W&OD. I don't recall where, but I think it was between Herndon and Leesburg.

    Not a snake, but a reptile, and sad. After a couple of Haines Point loops last night I crossed over into Virginia and ran over a skink. It dashed out across the trail and I veered to avoid it but it ran right under my tire. I went back and it was alive and could move some but was not doing so well. I moved it off the trail into the brush.
